Syrphus's picture

There is no doubt that this

There is no doubt that this is Song Thrush. MT is much bigger, much longer in the tail, greyer above, has white spots on the tail, and has large round spots rather than triangular ones.

In flight, ST is buff beneath the wings where MT is white. ST says 'sip', MT says 'churr'. ST does not have the very regular flap-and-glide habit of MT.

M.
